IOT, Cost, Retro, Energy Meter.


Automation and the Internet of Things (IoT) has become a hot topic in the present tech-driven world. Smart security solutions, smart home automation, smart health care, smart wearable’s etc. are in-trend applications of IoT, and by the near future we expect to see its application to a city's transportation system or smart power grids.. Nowadays there are lots of automation products that are available in the market but the cost of which is not affordable to the common man to use it at home or office. Home automation have various applications such as: Lighting control system, Appliance control and integration, Security, Leak and smoke detection, Home automation for the elderly and disabled etc[2]. Mostly all automation products needs special wiring and is not retro fit to their current switches. Automation for both smart and those who are not that smart should also be able to use automation. The research aims at finding sensors and IC’s that are cheap and with little modification on the software will reduce cost and making it small enough to fit into the current switch box so the little wiring will convert the current system to smart automatic system. It works on the principle of IOT with a central server to allow access from outside the premises of the system using mobile with internet connectivity. The energy meter also provides all the active and reactive power components of the equipment's connected to the system. In this project most of the objectives were achieved including features and cost optimization. Further research needs to incorporate camera and other security features.
